Scenes Along the Highway

  Lens4anEye is my profile name on the photo platform. Link to the Scenes Along the Highway Album Come along with me on a journey across and around this great country. Every road connects to every other either directly or by another road. Some of those roads are over 100 years old now and still contain some of the most interesting and iconic scenes. My camera and lens-like eye preserves the remains of many locations which are on the verge of complete disappearance. At the same time there are people who seek to preserve and reuse the structures and landscapes for their present and future use.

CLICKASNAP , the photo sharing platform these pictures are hosted on, is in the midst of a Seller's Shop overhaul. If you want to make a purchase but have any questions, email me at Lens4anEye@
